The colors of us

colors usSeven-year-old Lena is going to paint a picture of herself. She wants to use brown paint for her skin. But when she and her mother take a walk through the neighborhood, Lena learns that brown comes in many different shades. Through the eyes of a little girl who begins to see her familiar world in a new way, this book celebrates the differences and similarities that connect all people.

A visually appealing book with bold painted illustrations on skin colour diversity. Too often do we see the world in black or white; there are many shades of black, and many shades of white, making each person unique in apparence, and in caracter. A good read for children.
